Bozell Hits The Nail On The Head. Bozell: Mitch-McConnell-Put-On ‘Acting-Job’ In Rose Garden Press Briefing

‘It Won’t Be Pretty’: Trump Promises To ‘Fight Back’ Against McCain John McCain on Monday slammed “half-baked, spurious nationalism” in a thinly veiled critique of Trump’s leadership. Trump responded Tuesday in a radio interview.

Boo-Hoo: McCain-Cries-To-Trump-I-Have-Faced-Some-Pretty-Tough-Adversaries The Arizona senator criticized Trump at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia as McCain received the Center’s Liberty Medal.

We Say ‘America First’, but McCain Claims That is ‘Unpatriotic’ …There’s no secret that Arizona Senator John McCain is not a fan of President Donald Trump. He is also not an “America First” politician.

Several E-Mails Came In Yesterday from House Speaker Paul Ryan saying he was threatening to cancel Christmas break to finish the tax overhaul. He goes on to say “…half of all Americans are living paycheck to paycheck. We must give them the relief they need – fast. We must reform our ridiculously complicated, unfair tax code.” Well, golly, gee -- thank you for finally waking up. Grassroots Americams have known for years that reform was needed while congressional big-shots in DC have flapped their jaws and twiddled their thumbs – making promises they don’t keep. I don’t give a rat’s ass if the House/Senate spends Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s in session. They’ve had eight years to clean things up. Grassroots America is tired of the steady flow of BS from the “swamp.”  Ryan and his  windbag buddy Mitch McConnell need to  “Get ‘er done.”  – ft

APHA’s-Menighan-Testifies-Before Senate-On Drug-Pricing Editor’s Note: NAFBPO Chairman Zack Taylor got ahead of this foreign drug importation and the four bills democrats introduced immediately after Trumps inauguration to facilitate foreign importation on the basis of reducing costs which probably is the reason for this hearing, the four bills that is, in Taylor’s speech at the Oct 7 AFRA Conference October 7th. Testimony sounds eerily familiar, the former border patrolman notes.

Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna in response to President Trump’s tax address at The Heritage Foundation: "President Trump and Republicans have a clear plan to provide tax cuts to hard-working Americans across the country," said McDaniel. "This plan will boost workers’ wages by thousands of dollars per year, allow families to keep more of their money, and encourage businesses to bring jobs to the United States. It’s time for Congress to come together and pass a budget that paves the way for the President’s tax cut plan. We must keep our promise to the American people – they deserve it."

Editor’s Note: Please keep opinion pieces to 400 words.

Activist Lolly Hathhorn: I am still in disbelief as to the situation with the athletes not standing for the Flag.  You stand with your right hand over your heart and face the Flag.  What is so difficult about that?  Also, this racism BS is absurd since most of the NFL players are Black!  I’m so sorry for those million dollar players that are so discriminated upon.  Not!  I would love to have them go to the front line in the middle east and take the place of a soldier, then come back and boo-hoo about how mistreated they are.  These players carry a football while our soldiers carry backpacks weighing between 40 and 60 lbs – every day!  Cry me a river you selfish, egotistical, rich slobs!  I am ashamed of all of you who do not stand for the Flag with your hand over your heart.  Does anyone remember when Obama held his hands in front of his crotch?  Maybe I should not have said that, but oh well.

Activist Richard Hawkins:To protect your privacy, remote images are blocked in this message. Display images The philosophy of our public schools is based on John Dewey's Progressive Education model. I just completed Hillsdale College's free online course A Proper Understanding of K–12 Education: Theory and Practice, an excellent 12 lesson course with a quiz for each of the lessons (except for lessons 1 and 12) and a final quiz to earn a certificate. One of the quiz questions reads: 10. The success of the Progressive school consists explicitly in the extinction of the _________ mind.

      a. moderate

       b.  radical

       c.  conservative

      d.  all of the above

We all know the answer so why do we allow Progressives to control K-12 public education and why do we allow our kids to attend such schools?

Former AZGOP Chairman Tom Morrissey: Not to belabor a point already made, but I had to pass this article on. The link below, which I received from a friend this morning, will take you to an article that really gave me pause because it reads like it came out of Steven Seagal and my new book.  The article is about, what we wrote into the book last year. Art imitating reality or reality imitating art - or a little bit of both?  One thing's for sure, it is very, very odd. At least it is to me See friends of jihad Friends Of Jihad In CIA-FBI Intimidate Vegas Victims.

Steven Slaton Chairman Navajo County Republican Committee: Political Consultant Constantin “CQ Querard has been managing many of our elected official’s campaigns, while at the same time sold the National Popular Vote (NPV) and how wonderful it is to our elected officials, including Senator Sylvia Allen and many others. After many conservatives called, e-mailed, texted these officials, they stepped up and did the right thing by voting against it. Now, if our “constitutionally” elected officials are sold this bill of goods by Querard, we need to examine who he really works for! We have to keep on fighting these RINOS from giving our country into the hands of George Soros. The NPV effort is fully partnered with a Soros funded election groups - Center for Voting and Democracy, Fair Vote, Open Society, and the Joyce Foundation. Obama was once on the board of the Joyce Foundation. If Querard claims to be a “conservative Republican” then he would clearly know that the NPV campaign is funded and directed by Soros. THEREFORE, QC is working for Soros by promoting his beliefs of the LEFT. Shame on all of our elected officials who are being duped by this man as a worthy campaign manager looking after their interest and the interests of Arizona voters! Furthermore, per a phone conversation between myself, Karen Mackean, and Querard, he wanted us to find a sacrificial Lamb to run for the LD-7 Arizona House and Senate seats. Then he wanted to have them run under clean elections and when they get matching funds, turn the money over to him. He wanted the money to use in safe and other competitive districts to win. Now, in my view, this is morally wrong to ask someone not to put their heart and soul into a campaign race to run to lose. Also, I might be wrong BUT I think this is illegal to do with tax payers’ dollars. Shame on those elected officials who are using Querard as their campaign manager, without having looked into his involvement with NPV last year. He references Every Vote Equal by John Koza. Editor’s Note: See 10-9-17 Briefs regarding Querard’s denial that he receives funding from Soros and 10-10-17 Briefs in which AFA claims their research shows that by promoting NPV he is indirectly receiving Soros funding. - ft
